Multiple sources report that singer Gavin DeGraw, the voice behind the smash mid-’00s hit ‘I Don’t Want to Be,’ has been hospitalized after he was the victim of a brutal assault by multiple attackers. The incident took place late Sunday night in Manhattan where the singer resides. Reps for the singer say that the singer remains under observation in Bellevue Hospital.

TMZ reports that DeGraw, who is currently touring with Train and Maroon 5, was outnumbered and swarmed upon by several people on the street. DeGraw’s reps have confirmed the attack, saying, “Gavin DeGraw was assaulted late Sunday night and taken to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital by ambulance. He is currently under observation.”

As far as we can tell, DeGraw, 34, suffered cuts to the face and a broken nose, but is in stable condition, according to the New York Post.

The assault allegedly took place around 4:30 AM when the singer was out with friends and then accosted by thugs on the street who beat him then fled. The singer wound up stumbling around at 19th Street and 1st Avenue, where he was struck by a cab in his dazed state. He was not seriously injured by the vehicle. Robbery did not appear to the be the motive for the beating, according to the cops.

We certainly hope that DeGraw’s recovery is full and quick, and that the authorities are able to apprehend the perpetrators of this senseless crime. Get better soon, Gavin. We’re pulling for you.

DeGraw’s new album ‘Sweeter’ is due out Sept. 20.
